Make systematic targeting of the newest players....whether that be defined as 10, 20 or 30... defined as Farming also.

Unwritten Rules

Obviously any gross abuse of the game is forbidden. This includes but is not limited to:
throwing games or deliberately benefiting from thrown games, intentional deadbeating, serial teammate killing, hijacking accounts, systematically "farming" new members.

Technically Its covered in the rules, just not specifically. ***Really in the rules it should either be changed to new recruits to match the current policy, which only includes new recruits, or new players should be hopes to players with under 30 games

As written someone joining tons really could be found guilty, but changing it to a specific number other than 4 or 5 which in my opinion is far too low, would actually protect the new players

Concise description:

  • Just make definition to include the newest members so they aren't systematically targeted. Right now they are.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Right now it is legal to join unlimited games against players with 6 games. It is farming in ever sense of the word, and some, if not many are doing it on a regular basis. I think we need to protect the newest players, from the biggest wolves. (though one has been warned for this actually)
  • No need to make it illegal to occasionally join, but just illegal to target them. I believe it was the intent of the anti-farming rules, but it was so new that the new recruits were protected as a first step.
  • Its a minor adjustment, that will only affect the players that are farming the newest players, and the newest players hoping for a fair game, that many times simply dont have a chance.
